Building A California Climate Art Trail

We are happy to announce our new STRETCH GOAL of $5,000!

Thank you for helping us reach our $2,500 goal! We are aiming higher and have set a new stretch goal to begin fundraising for a mural in Davis, which will be painted in spring 2023. Thank you for your support! 

What We're Doing

Climate change impacts farmers in numerous ways, including through heat waves, drought, fire, flood, pests, and disease. While farms contribute to climate change, they can also help counter negative effects of the climate emergency by promoting carbon sequestration, water stewardship, farmland conservation, renewable energy use and climate equity. 

The UC Davis Institute of the Environment is working with students, youth groups, educators, farmers and agricultural organizations to communicate climate-friendly agricultural practices to Californians through colorful murals, distinctive banners and creative signs in agricultural landscapes. We believe public art is an effective tool for educating people and can be a powerful catalyst for positive change.

Earlier this year, we partnered with a Yolo County almond farmer to paint a mural on his barn and add signs to his farm that address the role orchards play in sequestering carbon. Our next murals will be in the Coachella Valley and in Davis. 

Our ultimate goal is to create a trail of climate murals across California. Please join us in our pursuit to bring awareness to agriculture's potential as a climate solution by supporting the next mural in the California Climate Art Trail!
